Crazy thought about earthworms (and air exchange)

If they were put in a bin with nowhere to go except your substrate would they dig through it like dirt? And would their tunnels help by letting more fresh air into the substrate? Im pretty sure the answer is no to both questions but I still hope someone is bored enough to try this.

theyd be happy enough to destroy the mycelial network. i had a nice outdoor patch of s. rugosa-anulata starting to get settled, and then an army of earthworms + ants reduced it to soil and wood bits =\

Yeah, I can easily see that happening. Whta about the extra oxygen though? If you had narrow pvc pipe with holes along its length and ends that are open to the fresh air and it was set up so when you first spawned a substrate the mycylium would cover it and grow around it.
Would that source of fresh air help since it vents the interior of your substrate?

i once had crazy ideas about using thin pipes ( through which specialized liquids would flow.... ) as root substitutes to grow things like amanitas and chanterelles...
